Retirement in 4: The countdown continues

Four more days left of employment. The accountant cut my last paycheck yesterday. (Silly gooses! They trust me enough to stick out the week.) As I deposited it in the bank, I felt a pang in my stomach. It's not that my earning power has come to an end. I expect to make more money. But, there was something very final about it. Like the end of a relationship. "That's it," I said to myself, driving away from my regular lane in the drive-up. "That's it. For now."

Good things a-comin'. Kina hora. You go past that 40-hour lane and transition into a the Free Expressway, baby. Keep on truckin', BG. Keep on keepin' on.

Kina hora poo poo poo! Speaking of the freeway, guess what I get to do on my first free Monday? Take the car in for repair! I'll have to keep on truckin' on my bike.
